Carl Junction woman pleads not guilty to abandoning Joplin Honky corpse

The Carl Junction woman who told the Newton County Sheriff's Department she did not seek help for a dying member of the Joplin Honkies because she thought she might get into trouble for using meth waived her arraignment and pleaded not guilty today to a charge of abandoning a corpse.

A pre-trial conference has been scheduled for 9 a.m. November 17 for Chelsie Berry, 25.

Berry told the Sheriff's Department that she had left the body of Dennis "Nathan" Meier, described by the department as a member of the Joplin Honkies gang on a driveway near Diamond. (Her statements can be found in the probable cause affidavit.)
